Our Italian drive went to great lengths to describe this Roman atrocity--too big the stone doesn't match, it's dumb, etc. We thought it was beautiful. We did not climb to the top, but we should have. We hear they are the best views in Rome--especially...More

You cannot miss this huge monument which I am told is not very popular with the people of Rome who see it as being far too big. You can go up to the first floor to look at the views without paying an entrance fee,...More

Had the appreciative experience to have visited many monuments. Thus far, this one ranks as one of the most fascinating in architecture, in sustainability, in grandeur and size. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, it was not possible to visit the interior of this one. However,...More

This monument has a strong presence in Rome. Visiting it gives you unique experience to the rest of the places, especially given the fact, that it's nestled right next to Roman Forum and Capitoline Hill. At the entrance, we were warned by the guard that...More

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very

ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this

The terrace was shut off at 19:30, so the last admission to it was just a little bit before that. The elevator was the only way to reach the terrace. You climb all the steps at the front of the monument, and then you have... More
